Rapper 2 Chainz aka Tity Boi aka Tauheed Epps and his Tru Foundation did a bit of good in the hood recently and he even brought along his kids to share in his good deeds.
Deirdre Plaster, a disabled veteran and single mother of two hasn’t been able to find a job in over a year and had been having trouble making ends meet.
2 Chainz got word of Plater’s plight through friend Mark ‘Biddy’ Barnes and paid her a visit last Saturday (December 5, 2015). But he didn’t come with just canned food in hand, the popular rapper brought new furniture for Plater’s apartment and offered to pay her rent for an entire year!

“It’s hard to keep gas in the car, food in the house, and do everything by myself being a single parent,” Plater told CBS 46. “I am on a fixed income. I love to see stuff like this happen for other people, but I never thought it would happen to me.”
“Last week was my son’s birthday and his mentor sister brought us something to eat for Thanksgiving while dropping off money for some groceries and she noticed that we didn’t have any furniture in the house,” Plater explained.
“I guess that sparked my son’s mentor Mark Barnes to do something special for us and when he got the call from 2 Chainz about helping a family it all fell into place.”
2 Chainz also shared his experience on Instagram and noted the importance of giving back.
Major props to 2Chainz and his ‘Dabbin’ Santa’ crew for contributing to those in need during the holidays!
